Gordon Boswell Holiday Decor

holiday decorNow that you’re able to unwind from all of the preparations involved in a Texas-size Thanksgiving feast, it’s time to put on your thinking cap and start to gear up for Christmas decorating. We all know how much bigger everything is in Texas, so your Christmas decor, whether inside or outside your home, shouldn’t be any different. You can count on our floral design team here at Gordon Boswell to help you create lasting memories with this year’s holiday decorating – no matter where you do it.

 

Don’t Forget About Hanukkah

 

This year, Hanukkah begins at sundown on December 6. It ends at sundown on December 14th. The Menorah is the focal point of Hanukkah celebrations, but most people don’t put it in the center of their tables. You let the candles burn until they burn themselves out. With the Menorah serving as the focal point of this holiday’s celebrations, you want to provide holiday decor in other places throughout your home.

 

Blue and white are traditional colors associated with Hanukkah. Our Hanukkah Favorite is a beautiful tribute to this Festival of Lights. It consists of blue delphinium, white larkspur and white lilies. We add some feathery greenery to provide texture and contrast. Perfect for a mantel, console table behind a sofa, or a console table in the foyer of your home.

 

Gingerbread House Cookie Jar

We love the idea of using unusual or unexpected objects as vessels for flower arrangements. Our Cookie Jar is a perfect example of this. We chose a delightful gingerbread house cookie jar to be the container for a flower arrangement that consists of different types of greenery, including pine boughs, fir sprigs, red berries, white berries and red and white flowers. The keepsake gingerbread house cookie jar will bring you and your family many years of lasting memories.

 

The Amaryllis – A Christmas Classic

Although the name comes from the Greek, this beautiful blooming bulb has come to be associated with Christmas. Add some attractive color and a touch of exoticism to any office, spare room, or just about any space in your home or workplace. An amaryllis is a delight to the eyes, as you watch the fast rate at which the stems emerge and the flowers open. Each stem produces many luxurious looking beautiful flowers.

 

Don’t wait to start decorating your home or office for the holidays. When you want to do it on a grand scale, like we Texans do with everything, you need to start very early so you can do it a bit at a time. Happy Holidays from the Gordon Boswell Family to you and yours.

Festive Floral Arrangements

 During the holiday season, we work hard to create a wide variety of beautiful bouquets, baskets, centerpieces and swags. Whether you want to add a splash of Christmas color to your home or you need a thoughtful gift for someone you love, you can’t go wrong with our Peppermint Party bouquet. In this arrangement, we use red roses, peppermint carnations and cute candy canes to create a delightful holiday display.

 Another great option is our Golden Lustre arrangement. Gold ribbons and bulbs give a warm glow to snowy white gerberas, roses, carnations and callas. Of course, we have many more arrangements where these came from, including flowers in traditional blue and silver, pure white and deep burgundy.

 

Lovely Flowering Plazoom_AmaryTrio-14111125645nts

 If you’d rather give a gift that keeps giving, we have several wonderful choices. Top on our list is the traditional poinsettia. We have poinsettias in several sizes and colors, and we’ve even mixed them into cute holiday-themed planters.

 Another Christmas favorite is the amaryllis. These amazing plants are topped with large, brilliant blooms. Our amaryllis are potted in special holiday-themed containers, and they’re available in red, white and pink.

 From fresh Christmas trees to wreaths and potted Norfolk pines, we have many great ways to accent your floral holiday theme with gorgeous greenery. Norfolk pines and evergreen arrangements also make wonderful gifts. Our favorite choice is the Evergreen Display. Rather than using flowers, we’ve created a wonderful bouquet from pine boughs, pinecones, holly and red dogwood branches. Send this display as a gift or use it in your own home – either way, the fresh pine scent will fill you or a loved one with holiday joy!

 Few things will fill you with holiday spirit like the scent of fresh flowers and cut evergreens. Share a little of that happiness with your friends, family and neighbors when you sent them one of Gordon Boswell’s beautiful Christmas bouquets!
